ABInBev launched this one in 2016 as “the refreshing way to stay sharp”. Being no more than 0.05% alcohol, it certainly won’t cloud your brain. Sadly, it didn’t exactly tickle our taste buds either.

According to the brewery, “the Beck’s brand is all about its German heritage”. Lemon-flavoured beer has a history in Germany going back to the 1920s, when the radler was invented for thirsty cyclists by mixing lager and lemonade. We don’t imagine that’s actually what the Becks Brauerei did here, but you’d be forgiven for thinking so. Rather than a fruit beer, this really more of a shandy, and not a great shandy at that.
